La Oreja De Van Gogh lyrics

La Oreja de Van Gogh (English: Van Gogh's Ear) is a Latin Grammy winning and Grammy nominated Spanish pop band from Donostia-San Sebastian. The name of the band references the famous post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh who cut off the lobe of his own ear. Their characteristically poetic songs (both lyrics and music) are written mainly by band members Pablo Benegas, Xabi San Mart?n and Amaia Montero. The themes of their songs usually include love, friendship, relationships. Since their debut, they have sold more than 6 million copies worldwide of their four albums. In November 2007, lead singer Amaia Montero announced that she would be leaving the group to begin a solo career. Her replacement, Leire Mart?nez, was announced in July 2008, along with the band's first single "El ?ltimo Vals" from their album titled A las cinco en el Astoria which was released on September 2 2008. Leire was discovered on the Spanish reality show Factor X. La Oreja de Van Gogh is Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal's favourite band.


History


With Amaia Montero

"Los Sin Nombre" (The Nameless Ones) was the original name of the band when it was formed by the four men of the group while in college : Xabi San Mart?n, Pablo Benegas, ?lvaro Fuentes and Haritz Garde. They recorded some songs but they were not released. They met Amaia Montero and, after listening to her sing "Nothing Compares 2 U" (Sin?ad O'Connor), she joined the group. They won a Rock Festival in San Sebasti?n under the name of La Oreja de Van Gogh and in 1998 recorded their first album Dile al sol (Tell the sun). They were successful and rose to fame in 2000 with the publication of El viaje de Copperpot (Copperpot's Journey, reference to Chester Copperpot in the movie "The Goonies"). Three years later, they published Lo que te cont? mientras te hac?as la dormida (What I told you while you were pretending to be asleep) and in 2006, they published Guapa (Beautiful).


With Leire Mart?nez

In 2007, Amaia Montero left the group and Xabi, Pablo, ?lvaro and Haritz made an audition looking for a new vocalist. In July 2008 they presented Leire Mart?nez as the new vocalist and the new song "El ?ltimo Vals" as the first single of their new album A las cinco en el Astoria (At five o'clock in Astoria).
